Questions / Re: MusicBee RC3 has a Virus?
« on: May 04, 2016, 03:13:23 AM »
Very strange. My Virus definition was upto date but it appears to have auto updated a few hours after I had tried downloading MusicBee.
I was able to successfully install MusicBee without issues.

Yes but the problem is, Windows is deleting the file after detecting the virus so I can't ignore it.
I take it no one has experienced this or has tested the download file as of last night?

A year later. I'm wonder if there has been or will be any further improvements to DSD support?

Beyond MusicBee / Re: What headphones do you like/use?
« on: October 10, 2015, 05:43:59 PM »
I've been acquiring a collection of headphones over the past few years also. I recently got a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 2nd generation, which I really love, and a pair of PSB M4U 1 which I really recommend people hear because they are grossly underrated. To be honest though, I use MusicBee mostly at work with a pair of Creative Aurvana Live 2.

I recommend the Beyerdynamic T1 if you like the Sennheiser HD800 & similar upper class headphones.
PSB M4U 1 if you like the Bowers & Wilkins P7, NAD Viso HP50 or B&O BeoPlay H6
Creative Aurvana Live 2 if you like the Audio Technica ATH-M50x

Questions / Re: Rip Quality (FLAC @ 24, 32 bit?)
« on: July 10, 2015, 12:52:27 PM »
Yes. MusicBee can rip to 24-bit for HDCD discs, but there is no benefit to doing this for regular 16 bit CDs. Your DAC or Soundcard is probably already converting them to the 24 bit or 32-bit anyway. The only reason to rip to 24-bit is if you are using HDCD which may have an addition 4-8 bits encoded with peak extensions.

Questions / Re: MusicBee bypassing Windows mixer

What type of USB sound cards do you have?
Some general tips. Make sure your USB sound card is turned on and detected by Windows before you start MusicBee.
For the Output choose WASAPI or ASIO if supported by your SC. Your SC should appear in the Sound Device section.
Make sure you apply or save the changes.
Under windows sound properties. Your USB sound card should not be the default. Or else Windows will use it for everything and there may be conflicts.
Also check the boxes for Exclusive mode under the advanced tab.

Questions / Re: Output Sound Device

I'm not sure about your specific setup. But here is how I'd configure my system for the same objective. First I'm on a PC, so in Windows 7 under sound properties I'd go into the properties of my digital optical output, and look under the advanced tab, and make sure all the boxes are checked under Exclusive Mode.
Then in MusicBee Preferences/Player, I'd make sure the output is set to WASAPI, and the sound device is set to the digital optical output.

And that's it. I currently am playing Rhodes Ahead Vol.2 by Marc Cary from MusicBee to my stereo system.

What happens when you unplug the headset?

Questions / Re: Equaliser Presets - how does it work?
« on: March 03, 2015, 04:29:40 AM »
You have to have the equalizer on Auto Select By Genre, so this way all the music with "rock"  as genre in the Tags will use the "Rock" preset. etc.
I don't recommend using the Presets though, as they don't provide the best results in every circumstance.
Instead manually adjust the EQ to optimize your audio equipment instead.

I'm not sure what wout31 is trying to say by "Playing of DSD files is done correct", as its definitely not a native transport to the DAC.
But frankcreed is right, that DoP is another good alternative.

Thank you for checking.
is it possible to add 176.4 and 352 khz output for DSD in the future?

Questions / A question about the conversion process of DSD.
« on: February 02, 2015, 08:20:54 PM »
When Resample to 96khz is selected in the Audio Player settings, does the conversion of DSD to PCM resample first to 88.2khz and then resample again to 96khz? Or does the conversion resample straight from DSD to 96khz? ???
